MAGICIAN (2022), 36" x 30" acrylic/oil on panel

The painting “Magician” was part of the Dorsky Museum of Art, New Paltz exhibition “Who Really Cares” curated by Helen Toomer in 2022. Schiele paints portraits and theatrical sets of characters in command of their own adventures. Sourced from Dresden porcelains, early European paintings and live figure drawing sessions, the artist takes problematic scenes and figurative expectations, and gives them center stage with attributes of power and action. This Clown “Magician” has a sharp edged mask of a classic clown, with a moving hand to create magic for change, hope or whatever is needed.
